Online peer instruction enables the development of open and supportive relations, friendship, and unity within a learning group. In this type of instruction, there is a possibility for relationships that cross borders of place, time, geography, and culture. The Project has been adjusted for a technologically rich learning environment allowing two-sided communication. It was devised along constructivist principles coupled with the cooperation of Israeli teaching students with their peers from Denver, U.S.A, led by the thought that it would change and develop according to the discourse and cross-points of the participant. Purpose: Examine the distance learning experience in an international online course among education students Methodology: This research is a qualitative and theory-based study. The peer learning community comprised 16 students: Nine students from the University of Denver, and seven from Israel. The research data were collected from a digital portfolio that was written during the school year and includes three parts: (a) documentation (b) reflective process (c) metacognitive process. All the participating students wrote reflections on the learning process after each session during the year. Only the Israeli students wrote parts (A and C). The contents of the digital collection were analyzed by each of the researchers. The findings:
1. Cultivating multicultural global perceptions
2. Development of pedagogical skills for distance learning
3. Addressing technological challenges
